    Awesome thanks Dion

     

    Any idea where I might find those firmware files.

     

    Everywhere I looked points to a now missing brocade filestorage link?

    Brocade has those files if you have a support contract with them.

    Most likely you bought those switches from Dell/EMC/HP/any other vendor.


    If you did look at that vendors support site.

    If you didn't and don't have Brocade support or other support, you can try the page I linked before
    and http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/psi/swdHome/?sp4ts.oid=1143933&spf_p.tpst=swdMain&spf_p.prp_swdMain=wsrp-navigationalState%3DswEnvOID%253D54%257CswLang%253D%257Caction%253DlistDriver&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken#Firmware

     

    However I wouldn't try this without accepting a risk of breaking your switch, and to be honest B200e are very old, 5/6 years already I would look for a replacement to do an rip and replace.

    From that point onwards you can maintain the FW level of a more regular basis
